Day 243: September resolutions


September already! Where has the time gone? Where has my money gone? Where did all this nail polish come from?

This is the OPI Muppet-themed nail polish collection.
It's coming out in November. One is called "Gettin' Miss Piggy With It."

So, it's September. I mean, not as I write this, but when you read it, it will be. And this summer has been a little... rule-bendy. And I really want to buckle down and for the next three months, really be very responsible and money-paying-off.

Also, you may have noticed that I changed the name of the blog from The Year of Shopping Detox to just Shopping Detox. That is for two reasons:

  • ... I'm pretty sure that I won't have my debt paid off by the end of December, so I'm going to need to be on shopping detox for more than a year. Or two. Gail V-O says that 3 years is a good time period to pay off debt, so maybe that? Debt Free In Three Years?


"Oh, hi there, Gail Vaz-Oxlade."
"Hi, Annabelle!"
"I thought I would take 3 years to pay down my debt. What do you think?"
"Fabulous idea, Annabelle! Let's celebrate with pineapple martinis!"
"I love being besties with you, Gail."
"Me too, Annabelle! I also love our hats."

So, I'm pulling up my white thigh-high lace stockings - I mean, sensible socks - and will do the following in September:

1) Follow the rules, most specifically the following ones: NO CHOCOLATE BARS. NO M&Ms. NO OVERDRAFT SPENDING. NO INTERNET SHOPPING. NO STARBUCKS.

2) SECRET PROJECT that I will tell you about NEXT WEEK that is going to be SO EXCITING!! But it's still secret.


It's a secret, I can't tell you! But it's going to be AMAZEBALLS!

Hi, I discovered your blog recently and have been enjoying it a lot! I too am very excited about the OPI Muppet colors. (At first I typed "Muppet polish," but that sounded weird). Good luck with your September rules! I'll look forward to checking on your progress.

Love the OPI! Super cute!! :) You & Gail look so cute in your little 50's dresses! ;)

It makes me so happy that you re going to continue this project and blog past 1 year! Because you are so droll, this blog is my daily pleasure.

Love the new title. I have a major blog crush on you, not to be creepy or anything. I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who's going to have to extend her debt payoff project a little longer. 2011 is going way too fast and there have been too many midday online retail therapy sessions.

I, too, am happy that you'll keep this site going for more than a year.

Also, a pineapple martini sounds delicious. I had a pineapple truffle from See's Chocolate last night, and it changed my life. FOR THE BETTER.

"Blog-crush"! Love that!
I watched an episode of "Hoarders" last night that featured a lady with something like 300 purses and shoes, and there was a shot of all her nail polish. For a second, I was jealous and then sanity kicked in. This morning I went through my purses and shoes...
So glad the blog is continuing, even though I feel bad about your debt. It gets better by the time you are 50, I swear (unless you become a bag lady - although you would be an exceptionally stylish bag lady, to be sure...).

Aww, you guys are too sweet!

@Stacy, looks like there will be a pack of 4 mini Muppet polishes, which will let us sample a bunch for cheap! Woot!

@Carla, thanks, Gail and I always have a nice time at the produce stand.

@Kerry, thanks and welcome aboard the crazy train!

@Quizshow, I am happy to be your blog crushee! Glad to have a companion on my longer-than-anticipated debt payoff.

@Bryan, pineapple + chocolate intrigues me. Glad it was appropriately life changing.

@Cyndi - ha, I bet I'd react the same - jealousy, followed by de-cluttering.
